Nut trees tend to be undervalued as specimens for ornamental or even edible use, and yet the benefit that can be derived from growing a variety of nut trees cannot be overlooked. Nut trees lend themselves well to being Espaliered and will produce a fantastic crop of delicious and highly nutritious edibles. They bring early spring blossom magic and can be pruned to the desired size. And nuts are so versatile: they can be roasted and salted as snacks, choped and mixed into a million different baked goods, caramelised, candied, mixed with seeds and grains to make snack bars, ground to make nut-butters, sprinkled over desserts or savoury dishes, ground into flour,  etc.

aka Almond

Nut. This almond is simply stunning in flower and blossoms for a long period. The large, soft shelled almonds are produced prolifically and ripen early. This Almond is self fertile and is a good pollinator for other varieties. Happiest in a sunny position away from harsh wind and frost. Deciduous.

Almonds like well drained soil and will not tolerate a heavy wet soil in winter. Choose the right position and you'll be able to go nuts!
